Let’s take a weekend and make a career shift happen.  From the macro of how the industry works to the micro of why an audition eyeline should be placed where it is, we’ll make it all make sense, so that you can find and create the next shift in your career.

Work with Jeb Beach and Wesley Salter on camera over two days.

Jeb will take you the the macro of the industry and help you to see how to open and explore your work in the space that the hiring client needs it.

Wesley will take over on the second day and get you looking at the technical side of things from his unique perspective as a successful actor and coach and a former Casting Associate.

Finally, you’ll wrap with career and industry review and q&a, honing in on how to step forward next.
